Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Looking for feedback on Pinarello FP1

I am interested with a Pinarello FP1 triple butted aluminum frame with carbon seat stays and fork...anyone has experience on this bike? A Centaur equipped bike is available for a good price...might trade my Soloist Team for it.

Thanks!

Base level Pinarellos seem to be over priced. I tested a Galileo which was last years base model, I wasn't impressed with the MOST components. I think of the Soloist Team as a much better bike, race proven fram and all that.

The one I am interested on is built up with a full Centaur gruppo with carbon shifters and alum centaur crankset...not the MOst crankset...would that be a good choice? the MOst items are the cockpit (handlebars/stem) and the seatpost.

I don't know that much about them, one test ride does not a well formed opinion make

Does it "move you"? will you ride it more than the Soloist? Can you afford the change?

2 or more yeses and we have a winner!

Ride safe
